Well known Victoria restaurant chain renovates!

Posted on: December 4th, 2014 by Randy Speck No Comments

Entrance

Dimitri Mavrikos and his two brothers, Steve and George, came to Victoria from Vancouver with the dream of opening their own restaurant. Their goal was to open a restaurant that not only offered excellent food but great service and a fun casual atmosphere as well. They wanted a place that felt like home and in the summer of 1974 Romeo’s Place was created.

There are currently five Romeo’s locations on Vancouver Island and the family is honored to be celebrating 40 successful years in the restaurant industry.

The Hillside store just did a total front of the house renovation and the Russell Victoria Team helped to upgrade their table top & food presentation by suggesting Dudson china and Max cutlery.

Congratulations- Business is booming!

Best New Restaurant in Canada!

Posted on: October 24th, 2014 by Randy Speck No Comments

Wolf in the Fog, Tofino, British Columbia: Best New Restaurant in Canada award

And now we can add one more award-winning eatery to the list of Tofino’s best restaurants:  Wolf in the Fog just won the Air Canada enRoute’s Best New Restaurant in Canada for 2014.

Food writer Andrew Braithwaite captures the essence of Wolf in the Fog in his citation:

“After a long day of surfing on the extreme west coast of Vancouver Island, where rainforest meets ocean, you stumble up a flight of stairs and into a soaring cedar-clad room above a surf shop. You’re greeted by a prowling wolf assembled from driftwood – but not a lick of fog in the house tonight – and Etta James howling on the stereo. It’s the kind of place that stops you in your tracks.

Congratulations from your Friends at Russell!!

Rough, Rugged, Fearless,

An unforgettable dining experience awaits in Tofino, British Columbia

Congratulations!

The strongest conceptual clue to describe the restaurant and fare lies in the name. Rostizado directly translates to “roasted” and sums in a word how fresh, quality local ingredients are tended in traditional-Mexican rosticeria fashion: slow-cooked, heartening and distinctly chingón.

Chef Edgar Gutierrez goes for home-grown goodness in a space that feels like relaxing at a friend’s home. Passing abundant platters, sharing drinks and celebrating everyday pleasures — whether big or small – is what Rostizado is about. Everyone is welcome!
